Flea and Tick Prevention

Flea and Tick Prevention with our Marana Veterinarian

Dog scratching due to fleas

Whether you have outdoor or indoor animals, flea and tick prevention is a must. Dove Mountain Veterinary, your veterinarian in Marana, offers comprehensive care for flea treatment and also provides tick treatment when required. It is our strong belief that it is much better for your pet to prevent these conditions rather than treat them later. Flea and tick infestation can cause your dog a lot of discomforts and in some instances, especially tick bites, these issues can lead to more serious health issues.

Which Prevention Method is Best for You and Your Pet?

The main types of flea and tick prevention include sprays, oral medications, and topical solutions. If you choose one of the popular topical solutions such as Frontline, your pet will be protected for a month-long period. This method is great for pet parents that are on the go and who do not want to have to wrestle with their pet to take a pill each month.

If your pet does not give you any difficulty when you administer oral medications or pills, this is another good option that is effective and lasts for a month-long period. In the event that your dog or cat has been infested by fleas or ticks, there are many sprays available to kills them on contact. We recommend that anyone who takes their pet hiking or outside in wilderness areas carry such spray with them and apply it to their pet prior to being out in known or likely flea and tick areas. Sprays are effective prevention and eradication but caution must be taken when applying, both for your safety and that of your pet.
